Can you say more on what is wrong in your settings...?
Usually, it seems pretty much straight forward, where you connect you component cables from the BVW-50 (out -call this player) going to the BVW-75 (in - call this one recorder).
The same for the XLR (audio) cables.
Do not forget to give a reference IN to the recorder (can be a video camera with closed (black) optical composite signal)
Put one more cable for time-code if you need the same to be copied also. (simple BNC cable) and setup the recorder time-code in the menu (or switch) to 'external'...
Or did i misundertood the question ?
